Roxanne's vow pulled my heartstrings. It was a vow that would quash all doubt, heal all wounds, and fill all hearts with hope that true love does exist and this marriage will last because both are willing to work hard at it.
One of, if not the most soft-spoken and most kind actresses around, I felt the sincerity and gravity of her love for Elton and her utmost desire for a happy family.
The entourage comprised of 20 principal sponsors, 8 pairs of groomsmen and bridesmaids, 3 pairs of secondary sponsors, 3 bearers (rings, arrhae, bible) and 10 flower girls. At some point, I thought the wedding march wasn't going to end. Haha! :-)
This was my parting shot of the church, the only chance I could take a photo of the aisle without the mob. :-P
A spherical "chandelier" of faux flowers and lights was the reception's pièce de résistance that night.
Below, the wedding cake with a slideshow of the couple's engagement photos by Red Fox photography in the background.
Ah, young love!
Although some may be pessimists at heart and say young love and young marriages are doomed, the wedding enthusiast chooses to see the bright side -- how lucky for two people to find the love of their lives at such a young age, knowing that they have more years to spend together. :-)
